A midfielder who is currently out on loan at Golden Arrows has opened up about his feelings about returning to his parent club.
Gladwin Shitolo’s loan stint with Arrows will come to an end on June 30, this year, where he will then return to Orlando Pirates, for the Bucs to make a decision about his future for the next season.
However, speaking in an exclusive interview with Soccer Laduma this week, Shitolo admitted that he feels like he ‘owes Pirates something’ this despite not being able to get in regular game-time.
“I will go back to Pirates at the end of the season because they are my parent club. Well I think that will change. I think it’s about time. I am 30 years of age now and, honestly speaking, I have not done anything for Pirates. I feel like I owe Pirates something. I feel like I can still give them something before I leave. That is the motivation for now for me to play for Pirates. I feel like Pirates will win things next season and I want to be there when that happens. I want to be part of that success,” he said.
The 30-year-old talks about his future with Pirates as well as:
- Shitolo’s recent Bafana Bafana call-up
- His impression of Orlando Pirates under Josef Zinnbauer
- Whether or not continuing at Golden Arrows is a possibility
